* LeaveYourQuestTest: Take away everything to do with Batman being framed, the Phantasm trying to get revenge on the Joker, and Bruce Wayne's failure to hold on to a woman. This is the core of the film, where Batman's ready to become a masked vigilante and go down the path of darkness and angst forever (although he hasn't seen any bats yet)...but has found happiness with Andrea Beaumont, the GirlOfTheWeek. This leads into one of the [[TearJerker saddest]] scenes in all of the Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjAFbEP0wK4 where he begs his (dead) parents to let him go]].

* AssholeVictim: Almost every death in the movie is a violent, unrepetent criminal that nobody mourns. Batman only opposes the Phantasm because, regardless of the fact that they deserved it, it is not any one person's place to be judge, jury, and executioner.

** Bruce Wayne finally going from well-meaning citizen to full-blown vigilante. No matter how you slice it, it's 100% badass...
